Mill Girls - the beginning

Friday was the first day of the Mill Girls Quilt-Along on the SBS-and-other-Elm-Creek-Quilts yahoo group. Assignment for this week is 1) to pick the fabrics you'd like to use (I have chosen a layer cake of Buttercup by FigTree and a white-on-white background), 2) cut the pieces for all the blocks, and 3) if you have the time piece the first 30 hourglass units. I was very tempted to see how the blocks would look, so I pieced together three:



Pretty happy with them :-) And it was so great to find some time to spend with Bernie, too!

Very Pretty. I love the pastels you chose! I can't make this one right now, I need to spend my sewing time making Christmas projects. I want to spend time with Bernie, too. I am thinking that is your Bernina, right?

Fine duse farger du har valgt.
Jeg var på jakt etter Elm Creek böker i San Franciso for 2 uker siden, uten särlig hell. Så jeg får fölge på avstand enn så lenge.
Lykke til med de andre blokkene.
